Two weeks ago I decided to return to my past and join a bowling league. I bought new equipment, ball, shoes and a bag since my last ball had split in half like in a Flintstones cartoon, my shoes were over 16 years old and my last bag was a duffel bag with a homemade cardboard ball support.

I went in on a Friday night to practice with Morgan. It didn't go well. I used house equipment and I bowled like an old man. Everything hurt and my hands were so tired the next day I couldn't squeeze clay.

When the league started 2 Sundays ago (wk 1) I did OK. I still was using house equipment, but I didn't make a fool of myself. I had a 128 a 117 and a 180. I felt REALLY good about the 180.

I got the new equipment this week. Had the ball drilled Saturday morning before the Oasis cleanup and tried it out Sunday night in league. This time I felt a lot better about it. I scored a 138, a 189 and then my best game ever! 298! Perfect right up ton the last ball..when I got an 8 and a split to boot.

It was cool.

  1. You gotta be kidding me -- a 298?!?!?!? I'm so jealous. I've got my own equipment too (including a personalized shirt) so we'll have to go when I get back. But you're definitely handicapping me a few pins.
